Must be "want to kick a puppy" frustrating to see one of those crack at the end, after all that love put into it :shock:

Bad idea. All a nakiri and an usuba have in common is the profile, and even then the usuba has a much flatter profile than a nakiri. They are not interchangeable.

Shaun, would you recommend the Tetsuhiro Nakiri out of all the nakiri's you have demo'd?

I mean all things beings equal.. take weight out of the equation.. is the Tetsuhiro White Hammered the best you have used? If not, what is your favorite Nakiri?

They're both vegetables knives, and they both have flat edges. Usuba is a pro version.

I've seen some taller Usuba's that are slightly thicker, and heavier than the nakiri that are so nice. Beautiful knives.
Was the first thing that came to mind. :D

What a gorgeous knife. And! ...heavier than a nakiri.
Most nakiri's are a standard 130-160grams.

No, the usuba is not a "pro" version of a nakiri. The usuba is a single-bevel traditional Japanese knife; the nakiri is a double-bevel knife that just happens to share a similar profile with the usuba. The usuba is designed to be used for vegetable preparation in the tradtional Japanese manner, while the nakiri is more suited for Western style preparation. They are two different knives, and are not in any way interchangeable.
